Closing week

Read about the problems course was having. Vacationing from Michigan,went out with random couple who were local , had a good time. Clerk was having difficulty getting computer to work , cart worker was excellent. As a third golfer they still charged me when I asked to ride alone for the single cart.

Course closing

This course will be closing at the end of the year as a result of tax issues with Volusia county. It’s a shame this is one of my favorites.
Since Volusia has so few courses it would seem like the county could try to work something out

Course is closing

Unfortunately the course is closing at the end of December 2020 and the lack of upkeep is apparent. There are weeds growing on the fairways, the greens have bare spots and the tee boxes are patchy.

Decent course with excellent layout.

Greens not very well managed. Slow and have sand on them - need watering. The fairways are in fair condition, but need attention. The golf path is a hazard with big ruts and the bumpiest ride I've ever had taken. Could charge customers and sell the ride as an amusement park thrill ride..

Needs work

Looks like whoever owns it has given up. Greens were in bad shape. The tee boxes were really bad. The cart paths need a lot of work. I got air on a couple of them. I love the layout there but the course is slowing going away until someone starts updating.

Thanks for being open on Thanksgiving

The only downfall was the greens (but they did have they overseeded, so it was expected). I can't thank you and your staff enough for remaining open in the morning to allow folks to play on Thanksgiving. Not everyone has family to be with and the normalcy of play makes it much easier to deal with the holiday if you are alone! Thank you!

great layout, but course conditions notiso great

The fairways were passably playable, but the greens were in sad shape. We live in upstate New York, where the opposite is often true. Probably lost 9-10 strokes on bumpy, sometimes bare greens. Interesting that the women's tees on some short holes gave a major break, but on some of the par fives were ten yards forward of the geezer men's tees.

pleasantly surprised

Wow...gorgeous course, especially for the price. For those complaining about the greens...get real...unless you are a pro , you can accept the average greens...
Not a walking course..I was tired just using the carts..
And if someone finds my Callaway Mack Daddy 60* wedge that I lost on the back nine, please turn it in!!
